The food was just ok, but the ambiance was good enough to relax. The restaurant is just a walking distance from SM City.

|San Joaquin Church – located in San Joaquin, Iloilo, was built by the Augustinian Order in 1869. It is known as the only church in the country with a militaristic facade, incoporating the bas-relief mural Rendicion de Tetuan.

After the photo ops, we headed to Miagao and visited the University of the Philippines Visayas and one of the UNESCO heritage site.
UP Visayas is very near to Miagao church so we just decided to walk and found ourselves eating some street food. It was very UP, indeed!
The Miag-ao Church was built in 1786 by Spanish Augustinian missionaries and was declared as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Baroque Churches of the Philippines” in 1993.
After the Miagao church visit we headed back to the city. The bus driver told us that they can take the passengers back to Molo terminal as there were not allowed to do so. The driver dropped us to Oton terminal. We took a jeepney going to Molo church and took some photos. The architecture of this church was also interesting. There was an on-going mass so we were not able to enter.
|The Molo Church is one of the most familiar landmarks of Iloilo. Built in 1831, the church stands as a reminder of Iloilo’s rich history and a monument for Ilonggo artistry

After dinner, we went back to Smallville, bought coffee and headed back to the hotel and started working. We still have hours to complete with our online job so we had to do some work.
At 1AM, we went out and the place was packed with part people. We went to Pierro Kaffee and tried their coffee and it tasted really bad. No wonder only few people were in the place. The worst coffee I had in my lifetime.
At around 2AM, we went back to the hotel and did some work again and slept. What a day that was.
